Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 8/27/10

tools2 Here are some interesting sites that I’ve found this week, thanks to my PLN. As a teacher, I feel we have to keep up to date concerning research in our field and current issues in the education system. I hope some of these inspire you, inform you, and even have you asking questions. Thank you for coming by and visiting!
Back to School Guide – from Edutopia, “Whether you're new to teaching or a classroom veteran, this resource-packed collection of 10 top new media tips provides fresh ideas and easy-to-use tools to engage your students and make learning more collaborative.”
Constitution Day Resources – “a collection of classroom-ready digital resources, to help schools celebrate Constitution Day” (September 17)
Teachers Connecting – “A place for K-12 teachers to find other teachers for cross-classroom collaboration.”
Free Documentaries – “streams full-length documentary films free of charge, with no registration needed. For several films, we even offer the ability to watch trailers or to download the actual film.” – “This site offers an introduction to mathematics and its variety of topics. It's not just for kids, it's for everyone (even if you aren't a number nut).”
